After spending time evaluating Corbin’s game film, it is apparent that he has great skills on the football field. Corbin plays quarterback on offense.What most stood out the most to us was his quick feet, quick release, and his accuracy. Corbin also did a great job feeling pressure, getting away from it and getting the ball out of his hands. One of his favorite plays is 21 Dive Bootleg. Corbin says, “ I like this play because allows me to fake to the running back and then bootleg to the opposite side. It will let me have a pass/ run option as well.” Corbin is a duel threat QB, he can beat you in the air and on the ground. This youth football player consistently demonstrates great leadership skills. He also possesses a positive attitude and knows how to pump his team up.
